Art History at Messiah College

Messiah College is one of the top private Christian colleges in the U.S. Our Bachelor Degree (B.A.) in art history is one of the few accredited art history programs available at Christian colleges nationwide.

In our program, you’ll study all Western art as well as some non-Western art, and will prepare for a great career as an educator, museum curator, gallery operator or art appraiser. A high percentage of our students also are accepted into graduate programs for art history and museum studies. The flexibility of the art history program encourages students to take minors or double majors, such as history, studio art or marketing, which permits students to further shape the major in their areas of interest.

You will have the opportunity to participate in either the departmental honors program or an independent study opportunity for in-depth research. In addition, each of our aspiring young art historians spends time studying abroad in locations such as Rome, London or Sydney.
